i had an idea last year that if the show wasn’t renewed for a third season, my friend and i would take up the challenge of bringing it to you via a series of scripts. and since the brandon james storyline and the characters are being booted for a fresh story, i thought it would be a good time to get to work on the idea.
but instead of a number of scripts, i’ve decided to start working on a feature-length screenplay, that will hopefully tie up loose ends and give the lakewood five (is it six if i include gina?) a satisfying end. or not so satisfying end. 🔪
i’ve got so many ideas and i’m already a little bit into the writing process. it’s such a passion project for me because i want to see this story concluded, and in myown way. while it’s a given that not all of you will enjoy my ideas, i think it would be fun for you guys to read my take.
i’m sure there are fans out there doing similar things, but i thought i’d notify any of you who have stuck around my blog since my original announcement last year.

According to numerous online sources, MTV is looking to reboot Scream yet again with a new cast and story line for the upcoming 6 episode installment, completely steering away from any characters and storylines from seasons 1 and 2.
The entire cast was given permission from MTV to look for other work, including Willa Fitzgerald, our Emma Duval, who has already found a role as a series regular on FOX’s own new reboot, Behind Enemy Lines.
This news comes shortly after Tracy Middendorf, who played Maggie Duval, announced via Twitter that she was asked to leave the show. She offered no explanation for her leaving, but said she’d leave it to MTV to “divulge the reason for the change.”
While this massive change is underway, the series has yet to find permanent new show runners for the third season. Is it possible that MTV has no idea what they’re doing? More than likely. Scream has gone through 2 sets of show runners already, a set for the first season, and new show runners were hired for the second season. Now new show runners are being searched for, making it clear that MTV has been confused on what direction they want for the show for quite some time.
Personally and as a fan, this is very unfair to the loyal followers of the show. The characters and story line is what has kept the heart of the show beating and us fans tuned in. It’s a well known fact ratings have been a huge struggle for the show, but completely changing the story, leaving questions unanswered, and dismantling everything that’s been built is not the solution.
According to the source, MTV states they’re committed to keeping the Scream franchise alive. However remiss it seems on MTV’s part, I’ll keep updating on everything Scream has coming in the future.
Should we really have to say goodbye to what’s left of the Lakewood 6, at least Emma Duval left the show alive and well with a newfound happiness, Audrey with a new romance, Noah with his success, and Brooke still alive!! and happily in love with Stavo.
